For a few fleeting, cuddly hours, the next president of the United States subscribed to a Twitter account dedicated to adorable cats.
The addition would not be notable were it not for the fact that Trump follows a mere 42 accounts on the social network—a list comprising mostly family members, hotel properties, business associates, and conservative news outlets and commentators—and has a history of inexplicably retweeting random people on the platform, a trend Saturday Night Live recently spoofed.
Twitter immediately noticed the change.

But Trump didn’t stick around for long. He unfollowed the account without even waiting to see the punchline to this joke the @EmrgencyKittens account tried to slide into his DMs.
It’s a shame really. We could all use more cute cats in our lives. Here are a few more, just for good measure.
